During the opening credits, several of the men in snow camouflage have impulse amplifiers on their assault rifles. Impulse amplifier is a device used with certain types of training ammo to ensure the gun keeps working, and also to crush the wooden practice "bullet" into harmless sawdust. It blocks the barrel of a gun, making it unable to fire live ammo when in use (and is thus used as a safety measure in non-live fire exercises). Russian soldiers guarding a nuclear weapon storage would most definitely not have training ammo in their guns. See more »
This is one of the better movies about Carl Hamilton and his missions for the swedish goverment.
Peter Stormare plays the part of Hamilton quite good but sometimes he is a litle stiff specially in scens with Tess (Lena Olin). But in the action scenes he is perfect. The way he grins with his teeth when Hamilton is in a tight spot is a thing of beauty. Mark "Luke Skywalker" Hamill is playing the bad guy in this film, and he is not bad as Hawkins. He is both funny and bad at the same time which is making the character more interesting.
The story is not the best one from Jan Guillou but it is enough to make it one of the better ones.
I still think that Stellan Skarsgard is "Carl Hamilton".
